    Default NH

    I moved here in 1984 for much the same reasons as stated by others, to "escape" Boston. In 23 years I have seen the local farms turn to cul-de-sacs with 1/2 million dollar Mcmansions, the local business' have turned into Wal marts and the local coffee shops turned into Dunkin'Donuts. The urban sprawl is spreading across southern NH like cancer to the point where Manchester is just another suburb of Boston. People that love this area would do well to work on their local Planning Boards and Conservation Comissions if they don't want to see NH turn into what they wanted to "escape" in the first place. The mentality of most builders is that they have never seen open space that couldn't be improved with concrete or asphalt. Don't buy into their "cluster housing preserves open space" baloney. It's only open space for the people who live there. More houses=more people=more traffic=more trash=more needed services and on and on... Yes, NH is great, lets keep it that way.

    Ya got that right! I'm only here a few years (Concord) and I've seen a big change.....and it's not for the better.

    The plan is to wait another 2 years (until my wife retires), and then move into the north country.
    That's the plan! Whatta ya think?

    Just me, my wife and the mountains.

We discovered the White Mountains the first weekend we were here, and fell in love with them ever since. We then began exploring them. 5 years later, we MUST hike and climb everything in sight! We're not 4,000 footers, but we've climbed some really great ones and try to get out at least once a week. (weather permitting) Snow shoeing I think is our favorite. There's nothing like hiking in deep Pine while the snow is falling.

    Anyway.........I hope to get to know a lot of you and share stories and picture with ya.

    If I could have up there what I have down here in Florida I would move there in a heartbeat. It would not be a good financial move for me right now. Maybe some day though.

    Welcome to the forums Joey!

    Thumbs up Feelin' Good!

    Hey Hiker Heads!

    All went well with my shoulder operation yesterday. The doc found a bit more inside the joint area then he originally thought, but he fixed me all up. I can't wait to start PT and heal. "I NEED THE MOUNTAINS"!
    I should be back out there soon. Maybe I can even "Seek The Peak".

    Here's some cool shots of the surgery
